On the latest episode of the Global Connected Aircraft Podcast, I spoke with VistaJet Chief Operating Officer Nick Van der Meer. VistaJet will be launching a brand new customized in-flight connectivity service across its fleet of 116 aircraft (combined with XOJet’s fleet after their acquisition) in the near future. Luxstream is powered by the SES Ku-band satellite network, distributed by Collins Aerospace’s ARINCDirect portfolio of services. The LuxStream system promises to enable the following:
  • 24/7 digital connectivity in-flight with the ability for simultaneous streaming of ultra HD content and access to their full-suite of connected devices;
  • A unique service offering the highest in-flight bandwidth available;
  • Up to 25 Mbps in the United States and 15 Mbps globally.
